There are many myths out there when it comes to the GEM car and other electrical vehicles. Here are some you might have heard and why they aren't always right.

Check out these 5 most common myths:

Myth - It takes 12 hours to Charge Your Car

If you use the slowest charging method it may take 6 to 8 hours to charge your GEM car from a completely discharged state. If you use a good high quality fast charger you can charge your car in a lot less time.

Myth - Major Car Manufacturers See No Value in Electric Vehicles

You may hear this one a lot. The truth is there are a lot of large companies talking about the future of electric vehicles. These companies include big game changers like Google and Apple.

Myth - Your Electric Vehicle Will Get You No Further than Your Neighborhood

While you may not want to travel state to state in your GEM car, you can certainly leave your neighborhood. Any road with a posted speed limit of 35 mph or less is yours to roam on. Your GEM car is the perfect way to run errands, do a little grocery shopping or head to the golf course.

Myth - Your Utility Bill Will be Too High

Your utility bill may go up a small percentage when you charge your electric car. However, you would spend way more on gas than you will on electricity.
